What Happens After the Statement and Judgment Entry Has Been Filed?


Step 1: Board of Elections Must Notify Permit Holder
No later than five (5) days after such filing, the board of elections must notify the affected permit holder by certified mail that the board has received a certified copy of the judgment entry.

Step 2: Board of Elections Must Determine Validity of Question
No later than 68 days before the day of the next primary or general election, whichever is earlier, the board shall certify the sufficiency and validity of the certified copy of the judgment entry and shall order an election be held on the question.

Step 3: Board of Elections’ Notice Requirements
The board of elections must submit the Notice of Election to be Held (Form 126-A) to the Secretary of State’s office and the Division of Liquor Control upon certification of the issue and determination of the date of the election. Not later than 10 days before the election, a public notice of the election is required to be posted or inserted in a newspaper published in the county.

Effect of Pending Appeal: No election shall be held to dry up particular premises under R.C. 4301.352 until all appeals of the judgment declaring the liquor permit premises a nuisance are resolved. The court of appeals must render a decision on any appeal of the judgment within six months after the date of the filing of the appeal with the clerk of the court of appeals, and the Supreme Court must render a decision on any appeal of the judgment within six months after the date of the filing of the appeal with the Supreme Court.
